Gaining Strength with Fasting (with Beth Bubik)

Danielle Bean

This week’s special guest is Catholic Fasting Coach Beth Bubik. Beth shares how she came to understand the benefits of fasting in a very personal way and how she came to work full time in helping others to benefit from it as well.

Snippet From the Show
When you make space within yourself in fasting and hunger, you’re allowing the Lord to make space for himself.

“There are three things, my brethren, by which faith stands firm, devotion remains constant and virtue endures. They are prayer, fasting and mercy. Prayer knocks at the door, fasting obtains, mercy receives. Prayer, mercy and fasting: – these three are one and they give life to each other.” ~St. Peter Chrysologus

Listener Question (37:55)

At the end of today’s show, Danielle shares a question from listener Sarah who asks about balancing the needs of kids of different ages in a large family.

Song of the Week 

This week’s song is You’re Not Alone by Marie Miller. I love this upbeat song and positive message about the importance of friendship. What are you listening to?
